Movies By

 

An extensive collection of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia hits the auction block at Julien’s in Los Angeles this fall. The November 17-19 offering includes film-worn costumes, personal wardrobe items, ephemera, jewelry, and more.

Built off three separate collections, the auction is comprised of the Collection of David Gainsborough-Roberts; the Estate of Lee Strasberg; and the Déjà vu Property From the Life and Career of Marilyn Monroe. For more information on the auction or to view items on display this summer and fall, click here.

For a sneak-peek of what’s to come, take a look at select items below, notably the dress Marilyn wore to serenade President John F. Kennedy with an unforgettable rendition of “Happy Birthday” at Madison Square Garden in 1962 (seen in the video above). It is expected to fetch up to $3 million.
